One day I was waiting in line at a drive through to get my morning shot of caffeine. It was a long line. I was enjoying music and probably tapping (yes, I do this while I’m waiting in the car, in waiting rooms and sometimes other places too). When I was second in line to order, this person was taking a long time. I was wondering if he was okay. Smiling, I even peaked over and looked at him in his side mirror to make sure.
He was looking down at something. Eventually he ordered and moved forward and it was my turn. When I pulled up and started to pay the person said the car in front of you paid for you. I was so stunned…”all of it?” I asked “yes”. Wow, I didn’t get to thank him but I sure do remember his kindness that day. It is my reminder to be kind to people.
Today I will buy someone’s caffeine or smile and make eye contact and possibly add in a cheery hello. This makes me feel good and could brighten someone’s day.
Have you smiled or greeted someone today and how did it feel?
